The Mystery of Karma Yoga
Today, people discuss karma as if it’s a banal topic. Everyone has a say on this complex subject. Even a person whose karma is so entangled with the past can also come up with a thought on this topic. It may sound jovial, but the reality is harsher. Most people don’t take a second to cite a few verses from Gita on karma. Ask them whether the karma he/she is doing is the right karma, you can judge how much they know about the karma. People often say I am doing this. But the real doer is the person itself. Even that person doesn’t know who is the real doer. Every day people are doing something to sustain themselves and their family members. Is that the real karma? No. Real karma is how you are selflessly performing a task without wishing for the result. You are doing this because your circumstances compel you to do this. When you do something for the larger good of humans then you are inching towards real karma. Remember so long as you do something and consider that you’re the doer, then you are far from the divinity.
